The Only Honorary Beatles Fan Club Member!

At the age of four Russell Jamieson was already an huge Beatles Fan!
Click the image below to read about him in issue two of Beatles Monthly.
The jacket Russell is wearing in the picture was specially decorated for him and he even had a tiny pair of Beatles boots. His story appeared in the local press and he was adopted as the youngest and only honorary member of the Beatles Fan Club. He got to meet his idols and even got tickets to watch them record Juke Box Jury at the Liverpool Empire. He was also sent a full set of Beatles autographs with a personal message for their youngest fan.

Several items from Russell's personal collection are going to be up for sale in our annual Liverpool Beatles Auction. These include his jacket, the autographs, his boots and several letters from the Fan Club, Tony Barrow and from Beatles fans who wrote to him after his appearance in Beatles Monthly Magazine.
